When eyeglass wunderbrand Warby Parker calls to request a special cocktail to kick off their 90s-themed staff outing, Eli is happy to play the role of Mr. Belding to their office full of Kelly Kapowskis and AC Slaters (and one Blake from Workaholics, you know who you are) ... if Mr. Belding had dispensed cocktails instead of wisdom and exasperated sighs.
Like WP themselves, the drink needed to be user-friendly but also sophisticated and distinctive.
Enter our Classic Grenadine. Made with pomegranate juice instead of HFCS and cherry flavoring, this is one radically sophisticated spin on the classic margarita.
And for that special hypercolor kick, dip your glass rim in Classic Grenadine to make the kosher salt stick. You'll be buzzing like Jessie Spano on caffeine pills in no time.
2 oz. Tequila (blanco)
1.5 oz. Fresh Pink Grapefruit Juice
1 oz. Eli Mason Classic Grenadine
1 oz. Grapefruit Schnapps -or- Deep Eddy Ruby Red Grapefruit Vodka
.5 oz. Fresh Lime Juice
1-2 dashes Grapefruit Bitters (optional)
Combine all ingredients and shake over ice. Strain into a glass rimmed with kosher salt and garnish with lime.
